Hey cloud engineering friends! I've just hit publish on another episode in the series about the cloud resume challenge.
If you've not already heard of the cloud resume challenge, it's a free, online challenge started by the hero (AWS hero, and general cloud hero) Forest Brazeal to help people get into the cloud by giving you a real, hands-on project and challenge to complete. You can find the original announcement post here.
In the last few episodes we wrapped up building out the front-end and front-end infrastructure (S3, CloudFront, Route53). Now we're moving onto the backend and getting a hit counter setup on our website to track the number of users who come to the site.
In this last video, I go through how to break down an AWS Lambda function using AWS SAM. The purpose is so that we have two AWS Lambda functions, one is a GET, and one is a PUT that we'll be using for our API's and our resume hit counter.
If you're thinking getting into cloud I do really recommend you check out the cloud resume challenge as a place to start!
